Latest Podzilla Binaries

The CVS Podzilla binaries, compiled nightly can be found here: http://ipodlinux.org/builds/ They are labelled YYYY-MM-DD-podzilla.gz.

Check the .gz file to see if the size is consistent with the size on the website. If it's larger it may already be decompressed.

Winpods

To upgrade podzilla from Windows, do the following:

1) Copy the new podzilla binary to the root of your iPod drive. The file should be just "podzilla" without anything else.

2) Create a text file in the root of your iPod drive. Name the file start, making sure that the file name does not contain .txt

3) Write this text in the start file, using your favourite text editor:

mv /hp/podzilla /sbin/
rm /hp/start

4) Reboot your iPod in podzilla and it will automatically update itself without running the installer on your computer
